I am a high school junior, every day I get 67+ pages of homework minimum. Because I cannot possibly do all of this and help around the house as I am the only one able to do so, and therefore I have no time to study my material and therefore my test grades suffer as a result. Homework is very good for you and your education.

One reason why homework is good is that it improves your memory and you can think more. Doing homework also shows that you have studied. I personally think that homework is very important and good for you and your education. GO HOMEWORK! ! It's basically forcing students to go home after a stressful day of school and activities and do pointless homework. Teachers should be teaching these things in class, not making the students learn it themselves.
It's preventing children from leading balanced lifestyles, with a healthy amount of sleep and activities to keep them fit and active. How is a student supposed to do 8 to 9 hours of homework, study for a plethora of tests and quizzes, play sports, get involved in the community, eat food with nutritional value, and get an adequate amount of sleep, all in one day? That's not possible. The amount of stress homework causes kids is ridiculous, especially when they're already under so much pressure to get into a good college and do well in school, along with making friends and staying active. Homework is not necessary. Yes! Ban homework.
Rethinking Homework Alfie Kohn
As part of our school policy, homework must be given out, and students should complete 85minutes of homework,, per night! I think this is too much as many students have other commitments.
Sport practices, jobs to do around home, looking after siblings, at after school care etc
It is a hassle for the teacher to mark/grade and make up something that is remotely fun, and enjoyable for the children to doAs a student, I don't get home from school until 9: 85 or 5: 55 and I am doing homework sometimes until 8: 85 almost every night. It is very stressful when you have seven classes a day and homework in every single class it becomes very overwhelming.
On top of that, I have to get up every morning at 5: 85 am just to catch my buss at 6: 95. Many mornings are very hard for me because of lack of sleep from the night before staying up doing homework and studying for two or three tests the next day.
If they banned homework, test scores might improve because then students would have more time to study and be prepared than if we have five different subjects to do on top of studying for a test the next day. Studying history is important because it allows us to understand our past, which in turn allows to understand our present. If we want to know how and why our world is the way it is today, we have to look to history for answers.
People often say that “history repeats itself, ” but if we study the successes and failures of the past, we may, ideally, be able to learn from our mistakes and avoid repeating them in the future. Studying history can provide us with insight into our cultures of origin as well as cultures with which we might be less familiar, thereby increasing cross-cultural awareness and understanding. I believe the single most important reason to study history is that history teaches us to 'think'.
